Half Hexi Scrap Quilt (#54)

This half hexi quilt was made with the large plastic template from The Missouri Star Quilt Co. and it worked out great. No "y" seams - just straight stitching.  Layout is must, going row by row to get the effect of complete hexagons.  
This was all quilting fabric from my stash, along with yarn dyed Essex linen in Indigo on the sides and the back.
 This blanket will live in my daughter's locker to be dragged out for lunch when she and her friends sit on concrete - so it had to be tough and rugged - as well as not too dainty since there will be lots of shoes & food around.
Quilting was done in a wavy lined stitch following the hexagons and down the middle in Aurifil 50wt (#4655) called Storm at Sea - perfect variegated thread for something fun and casual.
